platys are live breaders and so the back string isnt eggs or fry,I just got rid of my platy becaues she was over running me with fry(expect ALOT more babys because platy only have to mate once to have 3-5 seperate cluches of fry ranging fom 10-50 fry.I finnaly got sick of the fry in my tank from my LONE female that was pregnat before I got her.In all she probly had 75 babys in 3 clutches and would have probly kept going.)I would gess that it is probly waste but will have to see pic to be sure.
